The Mazda MX-30 crossover, the brand’s first all-electric production vehicle, will arrive in the UK early in 2021, with a range of approximately 124 miles.
Mazda believes that battery size is crucial for reducing CO2 emissions over the entire life cycle of an EV, and that battery size and weight is also a major factor in delivering handling, agility and driver engagement.
The Mazda MX-30 features a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery and AC charging up to 6.6Kw and DC rapid charging.
With a maximum system power of 145PS and a maximum torque output of 271Nm, the front-wheel drive MX-30 will accelerate from 0-62mph in 9.7 seconds.
The Mazda MX-30 First Edition will go on sale early in 2021. UK pricing for the full Mazda MX-30 range will be announced later in the year.
Customers ordering a Mazda MX-30 First Edition will also qualify for a free wall box home charger, while the car is equipped with both a Type 2 mode 2 charge cable for 3-pin plug charging and a Type 2 mode 3 charge cable for AC charging via home or public charge points. Additionally, the DC socket allows for rapid charging up to 50Kw. In this charge mode a charging time of 30 to 40 minutes can deliver up to 80 per cent battery charge.
